New Curation Policy & Updated Rules For Slothicorn

in #slothicorn6 years ago (edited)

We are excited to see so many new artists joining our community and we are now receiving almost 80 posts per day. However, this increased number of posts is making impossible for curators to upvote extraordinary artworks with 100% weight and adding to this, our VP is not allowing us to upvote every post. (Original artwork by Artists). Keeping this in mind, we have decided to change our curation policy. Before we explain our new curation policy, we would like to show some statistics so that you all get a clear idea about what we have done so far and why we have to adopt this new method of curation.

Number of Posts Received

The total number of posts we received in November, 2017 was 4 and in December 2017, it was 32. However, you can see the huge increase in the number of posts we received in the last three months. We received 2,422 posts last month (80 Posts Per Day), 967 posts in February, 2018 and 1697 in March, 2018.

Number of Upvotes Given by Slothicorn

Month Number Of Upvotes Average Upvote Weight
November, 2017 6 100%
December, 2017 220 80.24%
January, 2018 311 66.79%
February, 2018 888 51.10%
March, 2018 821 40.34%
April, 2018 1326 23.23%

You can see from the above table that our average upvote weight is constantly decreasing with the increase in posts and eventually, it will be impossible for us to check and upvote every artwork before it's payout is released.

New Curation Policy

From now, we will be upvoting 4 outstanding posts (1 of them would be curator's favorite) with full 100% weight and 13 posts with 50% upvote who meet the following criteria.
